Overview

A holistic health coach helps you rebalance your hormones, create easier periods, preserve your fertility, and revitalize your sex drive.

Alisa Vitti will teach you how to support the chemical conversation of your entire endocrine system, from your head to your ovaries. With a few easy strategies and changes to your diet and lifestyle, you can not only solve hormone-related problems, but have the energy, mental focus, and stable moods to be your best self. Simply put, once you support the flow of your hormones, you create flow in your life.

In WomanCode, you will learn how to connect the dots between your symptoms, your biochemistry, and food. This prescriptive program over the past decade has successfully helped thousands of women regulate their periods, clear up their skin, lose weight, alleviate PMS, get pregnant naturally, have more successful IVF, restore their energy, improve their moods, and have better sex. Vitti's revolutionary five-step program gives you the insight and tools you need to:

  • work in harmony with your body's natural rhythms
  • minimize the impact of toxins in the environment, your diet, and the products that you use
  • target and support the parts of your endocrine function (blood sugar, adrenals, elimination, or reproduction) that need attention
  • tap into the immensely transformative power of your feminine energy

Passionately and strategically, the WomanCode protocol gives women from their teenage years to perimenopause the keys to unlock their hormone health. Giving a brain-toovaries explanation of what is going on inside your endocrine system, Vitti can help your whole body thrive. Now that you have turned on your healing power, you are better able to power up your purpose in life. If we're in the flow of our internal rhythm, we'll also attract effortless opportunities, enjoy moments of creative expression, and connect intimately with others—that's when we're in the flow of our power, our life-force energy, and our fullest potential.

KATE NORTHRUP
“Alisa Vitti seamlessly meshes science, compassion, story, and solutions in this wise, practical guide to a woman’s hormonal health. The protocol outlined in these pages will heal women who’ve struggled with their hormones for years and healthy women wanting to enhance their lives alike.”
Library Journal
This book encourages body awareness and is intended for women who are dissatisfied with their current state of health or are desperate for other answers; what it provides is a mix of dietary rules and philosophy. Vitti, a holistic health counselor who suffers from polycystic ovarian syndrome, advises women to stop taking hormone-based birth control, empty their refrigerators, toss their makeup and cleaning products, and listen to their bodies. It has a number of faults, including a lack of cautionary information regarding dietary suggestions, misleading information (e.g., one "recent study" is, in fact, a seven-year-old trade journal article by a nonscientist), and few supporting references for the author's claims. The author's credentials are a premed undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins and a certificate from a licensed, but unaccredited, one-year nutrition program. VERDICT The constant use of the terms Womancode™ and Flo and (at least ten) inclusions of Vitti's business URL makes this book feel like an advertisement, especially since readers are encouraged to join Vitti's "online community" for between $297 and $1,397 for three months of access. A far better resource is 2011's revised Our Bodies Ourselves. Skip this one.—Susanne Caro, Univ. of Montana Lib., Missoula

    amazing. revolutionary. PRACTICAL. i know how to use FOOD to wor

    amazing. revolutionary. PRACTICAL. i know how to use FOOD to work with my body (hormones, organs) to feel amazing throughout the day. i know how to work with each of the 4 phases of my cycle so i'm eating, exercising, WORKING!, relaxing in ways that work WITH what my body's doing --- AND THAT'S NOT THE SAME EVERYDAY!!!  there's a great cleanse with meal plans, and ways to clean your home of toxic products and foods. AND for the first time ever, i know WHY those are bad for me and can actually feel the difference in my body when they're gone. Wow. I got this last week and read the entire thing on two plane rides. I'm doing the cleanse when I get back from my trip. I've got a lot of big goals around work, family, life that require me to be in tip-top form. I'm a runner, entrepreneur, yoga teacher, meditator -- and I've never gotten information like this. I finally feel like I have the wisdom to become the person, woman I know I must be, can be, will be. I just got it for my mom, sisters and best friends. I'm not usually so emphatic / evangelistic, but I want every woman in my life to understand what's in WomanCode.
